.
These guidelines are predominantly intended for healthcare professionals (HCPs) who work in police custody and Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARCs). As independent practitioners, custody and SARC HCPs face technical, ethical and legal issues beyond those usually faced by clinicians in more conventional settings.
.
The guidelines are intended to cover salient features regarding photography that might test the custody or SARC practitioner. It is hoped that they will allow safe and best practice when photographing patients and this may assist in the criminal justice system.
